Embedding Fonts

I have noticed that an older version of Windows (4.x) did not support a font that I am using in a site.  I could swear that I once came across an article on embedding the font in the page so that the page would view correctly across all/most browsers/versions.

Any ideas.

Generally speaking, while it works with some browsers, embedding doesn't work with others.

You're better off converting the type to an image...

I've tried using embedded fonts before...what a pain in the ass!!!!!!  not worth trying it until there is better support.  use an image or a font that is on every OS.
